Leaders of the William S. Hart Union High School District unveiled the colors and mascot that will adorn Castaic High School uniforms and apparel for years to come.
Castaic High principal Melanie Hagman joined governing board members during Wednesday’s district meeting to offer a progress report on the district’s newest high school, which is expected to open in the fall of 2019.
“We are right on schedule for opening Castaic High School,” said Hagman, as she shared a video with board members during her presentation. “It is a beautiful campus.”
After speaking about the school’s open enrollment format, academics, future collaboration with College of the Canyons and the other unique programs that will soon be available, Hagman shared that the future students of the Santa Clarita Valley’s newest high school will be known as the Coyotes, and they will wear the spirited colors of charcoal gray, white and burnt orange.
Hagman said she spent many hours working with community members, parents, office personnel and students from Castaic Middle School to determine the mascot.
“We’re really excited for the potential we have — not only for academics, but also for athletics,” the principal said. “Ultimately, I feel that this school is going to yield really wonderful students that are ready for their next journey in life.”
